    Hahha nice. I am famous!
    Anyway, as to reply to your post on the Evil Empire, my thread was about the favourite bands for each alphabet. It just happens that my favourites for each are post rockers, as I do enjoy post rock more than other genres.

    Nice to see the variety in a few of those letters.... I get a feeling some people will just go for bands they don't really like, just to fill the gaps I've got a few clues that's the case...
